I booked the Laila Mai for one night at late notice, as a surprise for my partner as we were going to a gig in Sheffield.Mark the owner was very helpful over the phone and booking in and picking up the keys was so easy and convenient. Also if you have the car, you can drive right onto the quayside and park for free right outside the boat, which is brilliant for the city centre.
The boat itself is immaculate, very comfortable and well designed. All mod cons and plenty of clear instructions. It even has a music system. The best part for us was waking up to hear the ducks quacking in the quay, and water gently lapping against the side, then remembering that we were in Sheffield city centre, which is a short tram ride away. A little slice of the countryside in urban Sheffield. A brilliant idea, wish I'd thought of it.
I really can't fault the whole experience and would definitely come back again, as it compares price-wise with nearby city centre hotels and is infinitely more luxurious. Five stars.More
